The press were unbelievably disrespectful at the end of Romney’s visit to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Poland this morning, shouting questions at him about so-called gaffes as he was leaving the holy site. This infuriated Romney’s aide, Rick Gorka, who was standing near the press (off camera) and told them to show some respect. When the reporter complained about not getting to ask Romney questions, Gorka responded “Kiss my ass, this is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.”

According to Politico, Gorka called the reporters afterward and apologized:

Gorka subsequently called a pair of reporters to apologize, saying he lost his cool.

“It was inappropriate,” Gorka said.

While it’s never appropriate to tell the press, especially when on camera, to kiss your backside, I can see why he was infuriated and responded accordingly.

Here’s a bit of a longer clip which just emphasizes even more so how disrespectful the press was as Romney left the holy site:
